Time to start a new week on 365 Cards
And of course that means a new sketch and sponsor.

 (I had to make my card before the images were sent out)

 Be sure to stop by 365 Cards and 
see what my fellow DT members created to inspire you :)

paper: su card stock, basic grey origins, punches: ms, sentiment: srm stickers, misc: lace, ribbon, pearls.

This is also for the following challenges:
Basic Grey Challenges #39 Wings and at least one BG product.
Crop Stop  #10 Spring is in the air. Butterfly's and flowers.
Sentimental Sundays #45 Pearls and Lace, with a sentiment of course.
Pile it On # 10 Up in the sky.

Thanks to all of you for your prayers and thoughts for my mom. She is starting to improve. They will keep her in the hospital until her lungs are clear and she is getting enough oxygen. 
As we see what smoking does to her.................I am SO glad I quit smoking!!  Hubby starts his Chantrx today and he says this will be a "smoke free" home. I had him toss moms smokes out so he can be the "bad guy" instead of me!  lol
**she thinks he walks on water so should not get as mad at him as she would me!**
